WOYWW 149

Busy, busy, busy!  I had extra time between classes this month because of the Easter break and here I am rushing to get ready for next week.  So that is what is on my desk this week - class preparations.  I don't even like the feeling that I am rushing to get ahead again so why do I do it time and time again!!  The more time I have the less organised I am.

My fingers are dusty and painty today.  I am going to do a bit of image transferring with my class this week for the first card of each lesson.  I know this technique is a bit hit and miss sometimes but that is the beauty of it.  It is not for the neat crafter as you can see from the pile of paper peelings on the right of my craft mat.  I did tidy them up a bit for the photo so I didn't look too much of a craft slob!!


I am using photos from the garden for my iris card which is nice.  I have a good shot of a rose in full bloom  next to a rose bud which I think I might use for my third card.  You can see the first card samples ready to go that are propped up on my tool tidy.  I am wondering what to do for the second half of the lessons.  I think I will stick to the flower theme but that is as far as I am.


I am halfway there with my second set of samples so I will spend the end of the day today making up all the kits.  If I try really hard I might get ahead again over the next two days........Mmmmm

......I suppose it does depend on how much time I allow myself to indulge in peeking at the desks of my fellow WOYWW folk!  Thanks again to Julia for being our hostess with the mostess......and thanks to you for popping in.

  4. Beautiful cards - crikey, how many photos do you have to print for a class? See, I don't think that a few tape peelings makes you a craft slob....and I should know. Ahem!

  5. Gorgeous cards m'lady! And lovely photography too - please share the rose image!

    Yes - it is metal on my desk, but rather than TSS metal, it's an adhesive backed aluminium which is ideal for what I'm doing. It's a cheats way of TSS work, I s'pose but is a bit tougher for regular handling. The Tools box on my desk is made the same way, and I use it for storing my TSS tools!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Your desk is very busy, love the cards you are making - a very interesting technique but unfortunately I can't attend one of your classes - too far away! Still I hope you get it all done and dusted on time!

    1. Hi Franka thank you for your visit today. If you want to try the technique I have a tutorial on my blog that describes how to do it.

      http://acraftproject.blogspot.co.uk/p/test-page.html

      It is part of a tag tutorial but the transfer technique starts at Step 4

      Have fun - Helen x
